About the Lederer, Lockhart and Bridge Galleries and the State University of New York at Geneseo
The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery in William A. Brodie Hall and the Lockhart Gallery on Main Street present both contemporary and historic rotating exhibitions, including works by local, regional and national artists, and by faculty and student artists. The Bridge Gallery, a unique space bridging two wings of Brodie Hall, exhibits student work. Geneseo's tradition of interweaving liberal and professional education began in 1867, when the state legislature passed an act authorizing the location of a "normal" (or teacher training) school. In 1871, Geneseo welcomed its first students to the Wadsworth Normal and Training School, offering instruction to would-be teachers. Geneseo became an official campus of the State University of New York in 1948. Geneseo enrolls more than 5,000 students in undergraduate and graduate programs. Geneseo is located in Geneseo, NY, about 30 minutes south of Rochester, NY, 90 minutes east of Syracuse and 60 minutes west from Buffalo.
